Hi

just a curiosity: are there any official plans to switch to version 4 of
ANTLR, which automatically deals with left recursion?

http://www.antlr.org/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=29130850

thanks in advance
Lorenzo

No, we don't have such plans. Why are you asking?

Best regards,
Sebastian

Well the automatic handling of left recursion in ANTLR4 would make
writing grammars easier, but that is not crucial of course.

cheers
